The Supernatural episode “Wendigo” aired on September 20th, 2005
Wendigo’ are someone possessed by a creature. They can be a separate creature but it depends on the legend. The Wendigo is an Algonquin-based Native American legend but known among many other Native American tribes as well. It is also known well on the Atlantic Coast or the Great Lakes.
It is believed to be demonic based in all legends told. Wendigo’s are usually created through cannibalism, the spirits then inhabited them by what they eat.
The other story of a Wendigo, is the Wendigo made a deal with the devil to become a warrior. A human possesses it inside its heart and the only way to kill it is to kill the human.
The human that is being possessed by the Wendigo has no idea what is going on. When the person/wendigo is killed that person can be rescued.
2. Bloody Mary
“Bloody Mary” also aired in 2005 but in October.
This legend name also known as “Mary Worth” “Mary Worthington” “Mary Whales” “Mary White” “Hell Mary” and many others.
The legend goes the same way as the Supernatural episode. Instead of blood pouring out their eyes it pours out of the sink, tub, etc. then they die with scars of their face.
There are a couple stories floating around about how and why this urban legend got started and if it’s real.
A lot people say its real and a lot do not. One is over a hundred years ago a witch that did dark magic was hanged and her spirit haunts the mirror and kills whoever says her name dies.
There are more but I am going to give one famous one:
3. Hell Hounds
I’m not even going to bother listing how man episodes Hell Hounds have been on, but my favorite was no doubt Crowley’s pet Hell Hound.
In Supernatural, Hell Hounds have black fur, have red eyes, they have a foul odor (not sure if its Sulfur), super strength and speed. Unlike Supernatural (so far) according to legend they can sometimes talk.
In some legends, if you look in a Hell Hounds eyes three times or more you are sure to die. Hell Hounds usually guard entrances to other worlds (like Hell) and are mostly guard dogs (best guard dog ever, right?). If the country believes they are derived from fire, they have a fire like appearance. A Hell Hounds howl is an omen of death, every time in Supernatural when they bark or howl someone dies right? Hell Hound sightings have been all over the world, mostly in the US and cemeteries.
Hell Hounds are also called the Bearer of Death because whenever one sees a Hell Hound death follows. They are omens for death and most countries scared of them. Another one is Black Shuck.
